Study Group Mathematics with Industry ? SWI 2017
Date/location: 23-27 January, 2017
Mathematicians wanted! - SWI 2017

SWI (Study Group Mathematics with Industry) is looking for mathematicians to work
on challenges provided by industry.
During SWI, you will work for one week on a real-life problem presented by one of
the participating companies. Representative of the companies present the problems
on Monday. The rest of the week is devoted to studying this problem in teams at
the event location. The teams present their work on Friday. Participants from earlier
editions describe SWI as highly interesting and challenging, and many return the next year.
An overview of the problems for SWI 2017 can be found
here

Both junior and senior mathematicians are welcome to participate. Participation, including
lunches and dinners, is free of charge after registration through the
registration form.
Accommodation will be provided by the SWI organization on request for participants from outside the Amsterdam region.


SWI 2017 is co-organized by the Korteweg ? de Vries Institute for Mathematics of the University
of Amsterdam and Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI).

Utrecht

Wintersymposium - Raakvlakken tussen Wiskunde en Informatica
Datum/locatie: 14 januari, 2017, Academie gebouw
Het
wintersymposium 2017 van het Koninklijk Wiskundig Genootschap heeft als thema raakvlakken
tussen wiskunde en informatica. In het symposium nemen vier wetenschappers u mee in verschillende
facetten van dit interdisciplinaire onderwerp. Rondom dit thema vinden momenteel veel ontwikkelingen
in de wetenschap plaats, en daarnaast is er vanuit curriculumontwikkeling ook steeds meer aandacht
voor bijvoorbeeld programmeren. Het symposium is in de eerste plaats bestemd voor docenten wiskunde:
van docenten in opleiding tot ervaren docenten. Ook voor leerlingen en collega?s van andere vakgebieden
kan het symposium interessant zijn. Alle belangstellenden zijn van harte welkom.
